Continuing with series on "God of regeneration", now in the fourth part of the series, let's focus on yet another subject...
God can not only regenerate an individual's fortunes, a family, a nation but He
can regenerate the whole wide world, as the following Scripture portion
testifies in relation to the Millennial Kingdom of Christ which shall
follow the imminent Church rapture and the subsequent 7 years of fiery
Jesus said to them, "Truly I tell you, at the RENEWAL of all things, when
the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me
will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."
Tired of moral corruption and escalating violence all around, with our supposed
problem solvers (political leaders) themselves having pending criminal charges
Do not our hearts bleed to see the plight of innocent victims of violence and
corruption? At the onset of this New Year, for those of us desperately wanting
to breathe "pure air," free of moral corruption, there is bad news to start with.
It would get worse before it would become better. The
world would plumb further
the depths of ethical bankruptcy. Remember the timing of eventual Divine
judgment on sinful Canaanites who were having sexual relationship with even
animals before God purged that Land (Leviticus 18:23-27).
"In the fourth generation your descendants will come back here, for the sin of
the Amorites has not yet REACHED ITS FULL MEASURE." (Genesis 15:16)
It was only when sin of the decadent Canaanite nations had "ripened" that the
good Lord moved the Israelites from Egypt, whose population had grown in the
intervening period (their stay in Egypt) to fill the entire Land of Canaan.
When the sin of this decaying World would reach its full measure, the Master
would come to purge it off its sin and set-up His righteous Kingdom. Let these
words really come alive when we utter them even as most of us ritualistically
and mechanically parrot what is popularly known in the Christian parlance as the
"may Your kingdom come. May Your will be done on Earth
as it is in Heaven."
Come Lord Jesus and take over soon the rotting world and
renew it in the way only You can.
Moral renewal aside, hey, there is going is to be physical renewal of
our once Green Planet once again...
The all encompassing "oxygen tent" in the clouds which was there before the
Flood (no wonder with extra-supply of oxygen to their bodies life-expectancy in
the Pre-flood times was 900! See
Genesis 5) but was destroyed subsequently (Genesis
7:11) with the onset of the flood (human life span decreased after the flood)
shall miraculously return. No wonder the life-expectancy in the Millennium,
when we would be ruling with Christ, shall once again go up...
"No longer will babies die when only a few days old. No longer will adults die
before they have lived a full life. No longer will people be considered old at
one hundred..." (Isaiah 65:20)
I can stand-up and testify personally from roof-tops nay mountain-tops on the
benefits of breathing more oxygen. Due to severe sinus problem from childhood
(untreated because of no noticeable debilitating effects in active,
sports-filled childhood), I developed hyper-tension and Diabetes problems by the
time I was into my early thirties. If Diamonds are forever, then so are some
life-style diseases like hyper-tension and diabetes. Now can you believe it?
After undergoing sinus operation in 2004 and subsequently reducing weight, I bid
goodbye to both diabetes and hypertension...nothing quite like good ole O2
Prayer: Father, we wait with bated breath for the time Your son would set-up His
Millinnial Kingdom and Your will would be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven. May
it be soon. In Jesus' Name. Amen
